I know that many of you will curse me when I say this but as you are reading this we are off to Marbella, Spain. Yes, I did phrase that two weeks ago about France but we are trying to see all our friends and traveling a lot before MM turns two and B is in school. I have also mentioned “our curse” on this family and if you don’t know it’s the illness curse where as soon as I book a holiday both my children will wait until the day before we leave to start vomiting and coughing their heads off. We haven’t had the best of luck with weather on our last few holidays either. Spain isn’t looking any different with MM vomiting all night Wednesday night and Thursday morning. B woke up with a horrible cough too. I need a miracle to make these two perk up for our trip. This is our last one besides our two months in American this summer at my parents for the whole year so we really want to make the most of it.
This week with illnesses, work and packing has been absolutely busy. B had some great news and passed his hearing test which was great news to us as he failed his last one. With his allergies and eye sight getting worse we were celebrating huge for something to go right this time.
With my week off it was blog catch up time this week. I have read wait for it… 350 blog posts this week. Phew, just typing that makes me tired. I stayed up way too late trying to catch up on my favorites as well as all the amazing linkers on Share With Me which hit a record for link ups. I have tried to read a few new books that I have bought and totally wasted my money on as they weren’t any good. I think I just have fallen in love with blog reading and my book reading will have to wait till summer in the states. I love a variety of blogs for so many different reasons. At the moment as I redecorate my office, my back living room, B’s room and the spare room there are a lot of changing going on in the LTM house and so these home interior bloggers have been taking up my time for inspiration.

Nashville has just started up again and boy did they not hold back in the first two episodes already. I was literally glued to my tv like a true fan. I love me some country music and the music just keeps getting better and better each time. I must buy the cd soon!
I finally found a kaftan that I like for Spain. At this age I need a few more in my wardrobe but I hate the long sleeve ones or the ones that go to the ground too as they just overtake me being so short. Its hard to find one that I like the style and color of. I am also loving my white and rose gold nails ready for the beach this weekend.
A remake of my momma’s potato soup growing up was perfect for the cold weather that enveloped us this week. There is nothing more comforting on a cold night than Chunky Potato Soup. Try it out let me know what you think? The kids love it!
As mentioned I have been redecorating in the LTM house a ton lately. Now, that the kids are getting older and I have more time to really put the final touches on our home. I am adding black and white collage to the back room as we speak. B’s room is almost done. I can’t wait to share all my upcoming home tours with you all.
I have some good news too… no I am not pregnant. Everyone always seems to think I mean babies when I say I have good news. I am very honored to have been asked to be Graham & Brown’s brand ambassador for this year. Their interior products are timeless and have been loved for years. Check out my vintage style moodboard inspired by their Northern Rose wallpaper. I love designing a room from one single piece to the whole picture.
Speaking of home decor, I have something special for you all too. I am so excited to be hosting a giveaway for House of Fraser for their gorgeous Dickins & Jones multi-colored cushion. I can just imagine this cushion on my own office chair or propped up on the hallway chair inviting my guest in to have a seat.
Enter below and best of luck!
